Monday, April 21, 2008

The lowland lake trout opener is coming up this Saturday and I hope you’re ready. Got the tackle box out and organized. Got new line on your reel? How about your new license? If you plan to take your boat why not give the motor a test start before you head out? It can be embarrassing, holding up the line at the launch while you pull or crank away with a stubborn motor. Looking at the prospects for the region, Park and Blue lakes are being picked as the hot spots for this year’s opener. They were both rehabilitated in 2006 and 2008 will be the first year for yearling rainbow. Most anglers should get limits of fat 12-inch trout. Catchable size rainbow planted last year should be over 15 inches and a fair number of them should be available this year. Another good bet will be nearby Perch Lake. Year after year Perch produces limits of 12-inch rainbow on the opener. Other best bets include the selective fishery lakes like Dry Falls, Lenore, Lenice and Dusty lakes for the weekend. Remember, all trout caught on bait must be kept and count toward your five-fish limit at Park, Blue and Perch.
